Little Angels

I haven't made any cards today, I've been looking after my gorgeous Grandson, I did try and get him making Christmas cards with me but, he has his own ideas and he made dinosaur cards instead!

This is a quick card I made last week

Sorry about the photo, I took it in the evening and the light is bad!
The main image is a Humphries Christmas Stamp, I stamped it onto neenah card, and backed it onto silver mirri.  I did the same with the sentiment, backed with one of the backing papers from one of the Humphries Christmas CD's (sorry not sure which one). The flowers and card candy is from my stash.

Thanks for looking

A Christmas Card

This image is not something I would normally use to colour, but I'm happy with how this turned out!

The stamp was a freebie from one of my card making magazines from last year,  I coloured him in using spectrum noirs, I thought the image looked a bit stark so I used some distress ink to soften it, and matted him onto mat gold card.  I backed the rest with one of my favourite  papers from one of the Humphrey's Christmas Cd's, I've used in on a few of my Christmas Cards in various colours. Just to finish it off I used a stamped greeting and a couple of pieces of Card Candy in green and gold.
 Thanks for looking

Purple Christmas Card

Just thought I'd show you my latest Christmas Card.  I decided I'd go for something a bit less traditional this time.

The stamp is a digi stamp, and I coloured him with spectrum noirs.  The backing paper is from one of the Humphrey Christmas Cd's.  I love all the papers from both Cd's and I've used them with most of the cards I've made so far. The card is finished of with a snowflake die cut.

Thanks for looking.

Flower Fairy Tea Light Card

I've had a little play!  I had made the smaller tea light cards, but I thought I'd have a go at the larger ones.
I made this for a friends birthday, and although you can't really see from the photo I've used the large tea lights and printed 4 Flower Fairy greeting circles onto tissue paper and used a heat gun to attach them to the candles.
The card is made from 3 sheets of Centura Pearl card and backed with lilac and green papers from one of my cd's (can't remember which sorry!). The fairy is from the Fairyopolis Spring and Summer cd.

Thanks for looking

Purple and Green

Here is a quick card I've made for a friend's birthday:

I stamped out the lady and coloured her with speccies, mounted her on some purple card, put the topper onto  a backing paper I printed from one of the Humphrey Christmas CD's (can't remember which!). I then  added some ribbon and flowers from by stash.

I'm going to enter the card into
 Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge.

Thanks for looking.

Just thought I'd add a couple of quick cards I made using my Tatty Teddy cd.

My 1st attempt at a Rocker Card

Hi All

I've seen so many of the rocker cards I just had to have a go myself:

I used my Craft Robo to cut out the circles and the topper, I cut 2 of the topper shape and sandwiched the stamped image between the 2 sheets of card.
The image was coloured with speccies.
I just need to add a sentiment and make a box for it, I'm going to attempt a circular box.  If I manage I will pop it on here later!

My Favorite Stamp

I think this is my favorite stamp, (well one of them )!

I've coloured her in various colours in the past but, I think I like the turquoise best.
I coloured her with speccies, and just used some of my stash for the card, background ribbon and flowers.
I'm going to enter her into the
Willow Sketchie Challenge.
Totally Paper Crafts Challenge.

A couple of cards

I haven't been very productive card wise over the past week or so, but I have made these:

I'm not sure about this one, the photo has made the colours go a bit off.  It really doesn't look like this in real life!

This one I much prefer, I made this for a friend of mine, the box and tea light card I made from the ultimate.  I used the measurements from one of the Crafters Companion shows with Sara.  It was so easy to make.

Hope it won't be too long til next time.

3rd Christmas Card

This is my first card with everyones favourite little Elephant!

To make the card I used:

The free Humphrey Christmas Stamp and Sentiment
Backed with a paper that I printed from a CD
Coloured using Species
I used a little of the backing paper to make the rosette.

I'm going to enter it into the Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge.

Ist Christmas Cards

My first Christmas cards of 2011!

I thought I would do something different for me, I usually use white card and backing papers but decided that I would have a change and go for brown.

My Latest Projecr

I've been busy the last week and a bit making a little holder for all of my pens!

 Hopefully it will make the colouring in much easier as they are all close to hand and I won't have to go rummaging through my boxes for them anymore.
